North Carolina Department of Public Instruction for Waivers to Title I, Part A School Improvement Grants Section 1003(g)

Tydings Amendment

The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) was approved for a waiver of section 421(b) of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA) (the "Tydings Amendment") as it affects the authority of the NCDPI and its sub-recipients to obligate fiscal year (FY) 2009 regular and Recovery Act School Improvement Grant (SIG) 1003(g) funds after September 30, 2013. Specifically, NCDPI requested that the authority to obligate funds for the State-administered Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) programs listed below be extended to September 30, 2014.

  • CFDA 84.377A School Improvement Grants
  • CFDA 84.388A School Improvement Grants, Recovery Act

This request to extend the waiver, submitted pursuant to section 9401(d)(2) of the ESEA, permits NCDPI in accordance with criteria NCDPI develops, to identify and allow local educational agencies (LEAs) with Cohort 1 SIG schools additional time to expend remaining FY 2009 SIG funds in those schools. In particular, the extension would allow Cohort 1 Tier I or Tier II schools with unexpended FY 2009 funds to use those funds to continue to implement a SIG model during the 2013–2014 school year, if the schools satisfy criteria developed by their SEA. Continued use of available funds will allow LEAs to fully implement one of four rigorous intervention models to significantly turnaround the school. The State believes that the requested waiver will increase the quality of instruction for students, improve the academic achievement of students, and continue to assist the same populations served by the programs for which the waiver is being requested in accordance with applicable program requirements. SIG Cohort I schools approved for this waiver are noted in the document below:
